Marie Schmidt

Marie’s journey into the world of yoga began during her travels in Central and South America. It was on a beach in Ecuador where she discovered her love for the practice and philosophy of yoga, ultimately leading her to complete her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2019.

As a teacher, Marie focuses on guiding her students through pranayama, asana, and meditation practices, with a deep commitment to moving with kindness and grace. Her classes are designed to create space and freedom in both the body and mind, inviting a mindful and embodied experience that is infused with heart and depth.

Off the mat, Marie loves to get lost in stories, whether that’s curling up with a good book in a café or exploring New Zealand’s beautiful outdoors through snowboarding, surfing, trail running, or mountain biking. Her passion for life and commitment to growth are at the heart of her yoga practice bringing the same spirit of exploration, adventure and authenticity to off-mat endeavours.
